About Us

Humanity First is an international charitable trust established to promote and safeguard the preservation of human life and dignity. It is a non-political, non-sectarian international relief and development agency that works with the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people.

Humanity First was established in the UK in 1994 and now has operations in 43 countries across 6 continents. The majority of our aid workers and management are unpaid volunteers and our administration expenses are negligible. We are able to deliver significantly more aid value in the field from the funds we raise because our labour costs are very low.

Humanity First’s objectives are to:

  • Relieve suffering caused by natural disasters or human conflict
  • Promote peace and understanding based upon mutual tolerance and respect
  • Strengthen people’s capacity to help themselves

Humanity First has been established in Kenya since 2006 and has been able to respond to a range of modest scale local disasters as well as focussing on longer term projects.
